, that's even better. >> to which one might ask, even better for who, mr. romney? we'll get to our panel for more on the intersection of a hurricane and presidential campaign in a moment, but first, we want to get more on the crane collapse here in midtown manhattan. a precarious and dangerous situation as the boom itself is now hanging on top of what will be the tallest residential building in new york city on 57th street and 6th avenue. let's get right to rehema ellis, about a block away from the building, for the latest. as i understand it, construction sites were ordered to tie things down by 5:00 p.m. on saturday, so what has happened here? >> reporter: well, what happened is what they hoped would not happen. what they feared could happen, martin, because, as you point out, two days ago they had ordered all building construction crews to stop, to suspend that construction with anticipation that something like this could happen. but this is beyond their anticipation. in fact, what we're told by the national weather service is that the wind was blowing at only about 20 miles per hour
the president handles the situation and what mr. romney does as well. >>> it's so sad. when we come back, he may be the saddest baseball fan out there. what got this guy in tears right before bed? you don't want to miss this video. it's coming up next. if you have a consumer problem for question, give us a call 888-help-you. we will be right back. ,,,,,,,,,, ,,,,,,,, . >>> well when your team doesn't take the title it's easy to be sad. >> it is but last week whether the giants knocked the st. louis cardinals out of the world series, there probably wasn't anybody quite as sad as this little guy. >> no way. >> what's wrong? >> they are not winning. they are not going to go to the world series, dad. >> who is going to go? >> the giants. i don't like that. i don't want that to happen. >> so what do we need to do? >> watch the whole game. >> well, it's late. we're going to go to bed and we will see what happens. we will wake up in the morning and see what happens. >> dad, the game will be over. >> oh, man. >> that just breaks your heart. >> wait until e hears the giants won the world series. >> that

[ r
for mr. obama to mr. romney and that doesn't seem to be happening right now. i think it ought to be hurting the campaign a bit. >> mark, very briefly. this is really a chance for the president to explore that illusive quality of presidential leadership in the campaign. >> this is what -- who deserves to be president. people are looking towards him, how does he lead, how does he speak for america? it's a real opportunity for him, but if he gets it wrong, that is a very big black mark just days away from the election. >> yeah, this storm, no one knows how it will play out politically. thank you both very much. you're watching "bbc world news america." still to come on tonight's program -- as china gets ready to hand over power to a new generation, the residents of one rural village talk about their expectations. >> a former bbc governor says that jimmy was kept away from children in need. jones, who was chairman of the charity, said he had suspicions about the former tv star a decade ago. his comments come on the day of whether the corporation's child protection and whistle blow
't mr. romney, though, vote consistently... >> chris: he has on -- mr. romney, to allow those exceptions... >> but, he has voted -- mr. ryan's voting record -- >> mr. ryan... joe biden didn't agree, with a lot of barack obama's positions but you listen to the guy in the top job. >> look, look at his positions now. i guess that is news. >> chris: no, actually, it has been for some period of time. let's move on to libya and the continuing controversy on the attack in the consulate in benghazi that killed four people, four americans and we learned friday, cia operators on the ground repeatedly requested military backup, and were refused and that they also asked to be able to go from the annex where they worked, over to the consulate to help out there, and were refused. and, this week, the father of one of the navy s.e.a.l.s, the father of slain a former navy s.e.a.l., let's look at what he said. >> he violated his orders in order to protect the lives of at least 30 people and he risked his life to be a hero and i wish the leadership in the white house had the same moral courage that my son
not made an electronic media commitment. paul ryan was here in pittsburgh just one week ago. mrs. romney has been here. why are they not spending money here? i don't know. i'm not privy. host: josh shapiro, not much of the president or vice president since the convention. guest: have been preparing for victory for more than a year. 50 field offices, thousands of volunteers going around knocking on doors, making phone calls. we are a bottom-up campaign. this will be one on the field in election day. i think the president as an organization second to none that i'm proud to be associated with. i'm confident we will have a victory on november 6th. host: josh shapiro, you're from the philadelphia area. bloomberg has a number of key counties to look at, among them chester, a lehigh, and others. why are these so critical to the campaign in november? guest: chair gleason will agree that the swing areas likely in the suburbs. montgomery county, that represent on the board of commissioners, is the largest among them. when you look at how that area has swung in past elections, that determines the w
that is supporting mr. romney. the first time the iowa paper has backed a republican in 40 years. >> again, that was peter alexander reporting. all right. we are back after the break with some of the best moments from game four in detroit because we can't get enough. before that, we will leave you with this. take a look at this picture. this is san francisco with the to upper glowing orange. [ laughter ] [ girl ] wow. you guys have it easy. i wish i had u-verse when i was your age. in my day, we didn't have these fancy wireless receivers. blah, blah, blah. if i had a sleepover, i couldn't just move the tv into the playroom. no, we had to watch movies in the den because that's where the tv outlet was. and if dad was snoring on the couch, we muscled through it. is she for real? your generation has it made. [ male announcer ] the wireless receiver. only from at&t u-verse. get a free wireless receiver with a qualifying u-verse plan. rethink possible. >>> thank you for watching nbc bay area news. we will leave you with the key moments in tonight's game. the big sweep in detroit. we will try to
. if the storm passed enough and opportunity to take part in recovery and clean-up action. possible mr. romney would head for the seacoast. at this point, all carefully choreographed final stage craft in final day of the campaign have been dashed. 200 hours less, really, before the election. exactly a week from tomorrow. the romney campaign doesn't exactly know what it will be doing for the next 24 to 48 hours. >> bret: still question mar marks. >> very much so. >> bret: still ahead, more inconsistencies between what the obama administration knew and what it said about the libya terror attack. first, karl rove and joe trippi on who is ahead in the presidential voting and what really matters, the electoral college map. we do it every week. coming up. as we head to break, cape may, new jersey, look in darkness there at the rin and the wind. keep it here. i know the name of eight princesses. i'm an expert on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they'r
government and fema. suddenly mr. romney loves fema. doesn't sound like he wants to privatize it today. >> well, of course he's trying to walk that back because this is not the kind of remark that goes over well with voters in the middle that he's trying to lure now. this sounded good for the severely conservative mitt romney to say. but the new moderate mitt doesn't want to be caught -- we have perhaps an unprecedented natural disaster hitting the east coast of the united states. >> right. >> the new moderate mitt doesn't want to be seen saying, oh, the federal government -- why not privatize it? let people pay to be rescued. you know, what is the immoral here, reverend al? the united states is the richest country in the history of the world. bar none. what would be immoral would be for the federal government not to do whatever was necessary, you know, move the 82nd airborne if you have to, to rescue people. make sure they have food and water and make sure as many people as need to be moved to safety are moved to safety. >> richard, ryan's running mate scrapped the budget, tried to el
good-bye if he goes with the plan he went with. it was a success. mr. romney is trying to deny he was against it and trying to take credit for it. >> ford motor company was not rescued. >> they were appraifraid the su chain would go out. >> we'll have more on the economy as we move around. i'm about to talk to john casic in ohio. these themes are perfectly in his house because it's what is going to decide ohio. before we do that, i think it would be interesting because we talk so much about ohio, how do you win the campaign. i want to bring chuck back in. we have a poll out of ohio, 49-49. the race is tight. this was before the final debate. take a moment here to take us through how each side wins this state. >> the joke is, it's five states within one state. the five ohios. the romney pattern, run up the score in cold country, it's what bush did in '04. win columbus media market an '04 bush territory. for the president, run up the store in cleveland, cuyahoga county and overperform with working class white guys in the auto belt, if you will. if you are looking at one county that
, "mr. romney, please respond to that," as opposed to the formality even of a conventional press conference in which someone is free to duck. you can duck a question. it's much harder to duck evidence and a video. >> but the parties and the candidates will not agree to that, unless you have it on their terms. >> which is why i am more dispirited, i think, than kathleen is because what you do get, even from this limited, signed on kabuki does still have some value, despite its limitations. i completely agree. >> but on abortion, here's what i think we can reasonably say reading history. what candidates say they will do in the general election of a presidential campaign and what they repeatedly say they're going to do does predict what they're going to try to do, regardless of what they've done in their past or what they've said in the past. i would predict that if governor romney is elected president, he would support, nominate justices who would be more likely to overturn roe v. wade than would barack obama. i think that it is clear, however, that he would not do anything to outl
with that saved the auto industry. it was a success and mr. romney is trying to deny the fact that he was against it and trying to take some of the credit for it. >> the company that is doing best, ford motor company was not rescued. >> they were for the auto rescue, because they were afraid the whole supply chain would go out if the others went down. >> let me get back in here. >> we're going to have more on the economy as we move along. the roundtable stays with us for the hour. i'm about to talk to john kasich in ohio where these themes are perfectly in his wheelhouse, because it's really what's going to decide ohio. before we do that, think it would be so interesting to really understand -- we talk so much about ohio. how do you win the state? how do both campaigns win it. i want to bring chuck back in. we've got a new poll coming out of ohio, 49-49, razor tight before the final debate. take a moment here to take us through how each side thinks they win the state. >> the joke is there are five, it's five states within one state. the five ohios. let me take you through basically the romney pat
. basically, it's a dead heat here. why do you think mr. romney will be able to pull out a victory in ohio? >> well, i think pretty much because the past four years. we've seen what the president has to offer. his going forward isn't a whole lot different than it's been in the past four years. and i think people are ready for a change. big word obama used last time. he was going to cut the deficit in half, increase jobs, we have a little bit of job growth. i don't always credit washington for that. i do credit the states and localities for that. but certainly the deficit's getting out of control and i think people are worried about their future generations being strapped with that. surely governor romney's been in ohio probably just as much as the president. they're hitting us quite a bit. people had a chance to listen what he had to say and trust in it. >> mayor coleman, you're mayor of columbus, ohio. the biggest city. how is the economy? it's coming down in this election to not only the future for other generations but also the economic picture in specific areas of the country. how is t
: but kennedy, the veran, ignored romney's charge. >> mr. romney, let's put the ads aside and talk about health care. let's talk about education. let's talk about training. let's talk abo new jobs. let's talk about infrastructure. let's talk about our different a vision for massachusetts. that's what the people of massachusetts want to talk about. and that what i think they ought to hear about. >> i think about 10 or 15 minutes in, romney began toth realize is was not the easy exercise he thought it was going to be. >> narrator: then romney faltered. the issue was health care. >> i have a plan.is i have a position paper on health care. i'm happy to show it to you, senator, any time you'd like. >> mr. romney, it isn't a question of showing me your paper. it's a question of showing all of the people in here that are watching this program the paper. they ought to have an opportunity to know. what is the cost of your program? >> i don't have a cost of my program. >> you don't have a cost? >> no, i'm sorry, i don't have... >> what would be the impact of that on the budget? >> well, the impact, i do
and inside was our flag in perfect condition. sits next on the flagpole next to mr. romney, and electricity ran through my arms because i thought about men and women of our space program who have lived their lives for something bigger than americ themselves. think of women who have served in the arm for first, their willingness to walk in the way of danger for us, for liberty. it is part of the american character to give of oneself to something bigger than oneself. it is who we are. is true in the patriots of the space program, the patrons who serve in our military, who served in the homes. my sister is in her 70's. she has eight children. they are all married with kids of their own, except the untest. the youngest, jeffrey, was born with down's syndrome. he is about 43 right now. her husband pass away a few years ago. she is at home with jeffrey, and she has devoted the last 43 years of her life to making sure that jeffrey's life is as full and complete as can possibly be. and he wrote to me. -- a hero to me. i think of the single moms across the country who are scrimping and saving right
of the cspan voters are. these people can be persuaded to vote for mr. runyan. -- for romney. both campaigns will be out there working very hard to get the vote on election day. host: quick comment? caller: i wish the gentleman would look at the desk moines, iowa race. that was a very fevered endorsement that he gave. the economy is linked to what is going on in other countries. that is an endorsement that was given. thank you all. host: one final call and one tweet - this is in " the new york times" this morning -- this comes down to a county by county talent as we saw in florida -- county count as we saw in florida. guest: ironically, if al gore had asked for a statewide recounts in florida, he would have won. the supreme court would not have shut it down. the media came in afterwards and requested those ballots. he would have lost under the recounted s four which was to do only the high democratic counties. there were a lot of democratic votes for gore in those counties that were not the deep blue counties where he thought he would get the votes. the lesson i think the party iis learned i
. >> the other g -- >> stephanie: he's a geek. mr. romney gained ground in one of the polls. online poll conducted for reuters. lost ground in five others. romney with president obama improving his standing. mr. obama gained one point. closest we've come in a week or so to one candidate having won the day in tracking polls. that was mr. obama. >> he's not. >> stephanie: obama still has a 73.1% of winning re-election. he's at 294 electoral to romney's 243. >> fact checkers say -- >> stephanie: nate silver is a fact checker. >> oh, okay. >> i'm getting a bunch of tweets saying we do have early voting in california. >> stephanie: oh well it seems like we're too misinformed to have a show like this. >> i looked it up. i can't seem to find it. >> a bunch of people are tweeting saying california has in person early voting. >> stephanie: i'm going now. you guys finish the show. >> i'll double check that. >> my polling place is currently a school right now. >> korean baptist church. >> stephanie: the latest poll out this morn
-- in the indiana senate for a primary bid the romney campaign said that they did not reflect his views. the women's votes -- obama has been losing some of the women's vote to romney. >> rebalancing, the first debate not that mr. mourdock said anything -- it is obvious what he was thinking. on the other hand, what he was thinking clearly is that rape much less important than preserving a life, and for a lot of women, saying that rape isn't all that important is a very unfortunate thing. romney has disagreed with them, but he has not taken back the ad he's running for mourdock. >> every time you watch the cable this shows now, you see someone from planned parenthood, or another group pro-abortion or so forth. the obama people are running with this ball, colby. will it have legs? >> i think it will have an impact. it calls attention to paul ryan, who shares the same view that there should be no exception for rape, abortion in case of rape or anything else, except that ryan's principled position gives way to politics and he is willing to buy the mitt romney position that there should be exceptions. t
romney is now neck- and-neck with barack obama in many of the crucial swing states. these romney supporters, with little more than a week ago, are beginning to claim victory. in contrast, mr. obama in washington yesterday was burdened with double trouble, faced with a desperately tight election race, but now some campaign plans disrupted by the need to leave the nature -- -- lead the nation through the weather emergency. at least it is a chance to look and sound presidential. with just a week ago and the race in a dead heat, no campaign stunt is too much trouble, even for the wives of the candidates. michelle obama on a tv comedy show literally getting the votes out early, to give the democrats the advantage. and ann romney appealing to the undecided women voters that republicans want to win over. no one really knows what tactics will make a difference. indeed ate swing states that will decide this election, that is. -- in the 8 swing states that will decide the election. >> this is bbc world news. hurricane sandy is strengthening as it approaches the east coast of the united st
that coordinates the government's response to the storm mr. obama reminded people to follow instructions of local officials before he cancelled a scheduled appears in florida. hurricane sandy forced mitt romney to change his plans for the second time in the last few days. romney campaigned in the state of ohio yesterday instead of virginia as planned. his campaign cancelled appearance for tomorrow in new hampshire. romney telling supporters one stop in ohio, our throughouts and prayers where the -- our thoughts and prayers are with the people who are in harm's way. >>> many fans watching on a jumbotron. thousands watched the world series with other giants' fans and share that sweet victory. others lined restaurants and bars in the city. a lot of celebrating there. now they are ready for the parade which will be this wednesday. the planning started days ago when we were heading in the right direction. i didn't say only two more games until we have the world series. i didn't want to jinx us. >> i know, i said full out, because i wasn't superstitious. >> we'll look at sandy of course what is going t

governor romney should release his returns class let's start with mr. schneider. schneider: everything that voters want to know about my financial position, what i is have learned and owned and our kids savings accounts are included on a report i filed with the house. that it's been reported in the papers as well. what i said is my wife has her own career. she is a professional and she has employees who work for her and she has competitors. she is not running for congress. my wife has a right to a certain degree of privacy and everything you want to know about my finances are on the report. >> moderator: they are entitled to transparency as a candidate. dold: let me say i've released my returns. my wife is on there as well and i think the voters to have a right to transparency here and frankly the fact that we don't know what was paid in those taxes and we don't don't know what deductions were taken we don't know if taxes were paid on domestic employees. we don't know any of those types of things on these return
, we will finally see help for america's middle class. host: that was mitt romney in iowa on friday. let's hear from richard in milwaukee, wisconsin on the democratic line. caller: good morning, c-span, and good morning mr. glover. i have a question on the associated press. where do you get your polling from? at work we have 90 people and last week we took our own polling. that was in a secret ballot. everybody said that they never got calls in the last 30 days, calls from anybody. so we took our own secret ballot. obama comes out with 77 people. so that is my question. thank you. guest: well, thank you. by the way, i will be in milwaukee a couple weeks after the election. it's one of my favorite cities. so i enjoy taking a call from up here. if we do bowling and we have a polling firm contract with that does are pulling. we have a sample of 700 people nationwide, so not everybody gets a phone call. our polling is done in conjunction with other news organizations. but we don't do as much poling as other news organizations do, because our feeling is that if you spend a lot of money o
in the democratic column. >> all right. >> bill: jamal? >> as -- mr. mayor, you mentioned some ads. but most people believe those ads are targeted at wisconsin, right? >> yeah st. paul and duluth is right on the border. and, you know, i think what the romney campaign has tried to do is fake the fact that they have grassroots support. it's kind of like faking like you are for the middle class, which we have seen them do so they have tried to make it look like they have support all over the place, but the reality is -- i have to tell you one very quick story. i was in sue city, iowa there was a little old lady making calls, and she had been there for six months. i was there six weeks period and she was still -- well she had moved across the room. so that's the kind of commitment we're talking about. >> bill: the romney campaign they are trying to paint him as a moderate who will work with democrats, sort of a middle of the road guy, whereas the reality is on most of the issues, he is about as extreme as you can get without being a tea partier, and maybe he is a tea partier.
